Ubuntu-ized iMac

I decided to put Ubuntu PPC through its paces today at work on a first generation rev. B iMac with 288MB ram and a 266Mhz G3 processor. Unsurprisingly it runs quite well and comes with a lot of useful apps installed out of the box. I was impressed with Gnome’s built in terminal server client; connecting to a variety of campus terminal servers was quite painless and very responsive. In some ways I find myself liking Gnome more than KDE, but I can’t really give a definitive reason why at this point.
